If u are religious then u should visit this temple to get blessings. Very Gud temple where Gents have to enter bare chest without any cloth on top , no shirt or t shirt. It is a small but gud temple .

Goddess Kanyakumari stands on the extreme tip of our country and the temple is pretty old and well maintained. The Nose ring of the goddess is simply superb and the idol is decorated very well .. Must see place.

Its a beautiful temple in kanyakumari. Located at the beach. 2 mins walk from the hotel we stayed in there. Dress code has to be followed. For women its saree or suit or kurti churidaar. For guys they have to be bare chested. But i saw a lot of men with their shirts on. Even some girls with skirts. So... More

Another experience of ransom after previous one at Suchindram. If you dont want to stand in queue pay Rs. 20/- each and then there will be a fat bearded so called priest who demands another sum and forces you to buy thali of lamps. When we rejected he literally pushed some ladies from our group. We had a serious confrontation... More

The design of the temple is out and out Tamil with stone roofs and well sculptured gopuram but the customs are traditional Kerala. Men are to remove their shirts before entering the temple. The idol is like the one in the myth-a well dressed about to be married lovely maiden. There are n't many sub deities here. The ambiance is... More

By just seeing at devi's idol, we will get peace. There is very less rush in temple. So you can finish Darshan in less than 10 minutes during off peak season...Camera is not allowed inside temple...They will charge 10 rupees to deposit camera.

The pandas are running a racket here. To avoid the general queue (which frankly may not have been very long) we took the 20/- queue. One chap at the first gate issued the two tickets and another one two arm lengths away tore them up and dumped them in a large wooden box that had hundreds of other ticket scraps.... More

As per the belief, Kumari Amman had performed severe penance and austerities sitting on the Vivekanand Memorial rock. Bhagavathy Amman Temple is dedicated to Kumari Amman. Temple is located close to the sea shore. We visited during the evening hours after returning from Vivekanand... More
